I traded in a 2008 Silverado with no frame rust issues for a 2011 GMC Sierra thats frame is peeling its coating like its shedding its skin.
Couple that with parking it on my new driveway, and the result is rust streaking all along the drive.
The truck only saw one mild winter, and was parked all winter long for this past one.
Just plain junk, plain and simple.
I've been buying GM trucks since 1976. This will be my last.

Yup! my bumpers are rusting now, the exhaust manifolds and door hinges as well, I do not think it will last the 3 years I have left to pay on it! I wish I would have kept my Ram! I screwed myself and GM gave me the reach around!

GM doesn't care whether the corrosion is to your undercarriage or your body panels. They do not cover ANY corrosion caused by the environment, which is as we all know, is all corrosion. They are just jerking you around.

#188 of 231 2010 GMC Sierra 1500 undercarriage rust
Mar 14, 2013 (4:38 am)
Hi All! I bought my truck in California (orange county) in the summer of 2010. I recently moved to Florida, its only been 4 months, and have noticed that the undercarriage is developing rust on certain areas. THIS IS MY FIRST GM CAR AND MY LAST. This is totally unacceptable. I cannot believe the stories I am reading out here about other owners having the same issue. Even my hitch, which has never had anything attached to it, is developing rust!!!!!!
I have noticed something peeling off from the frame where the rust is forming. I've also noticed that rust tends to form on spots where there is rubbing on the frame; If a brake line or a harness rubs against the rame rust will start forming there.
I am very dissapointed with this issue.
Other than this, I love my truck.

This is an ongoing issue with so many trucks. I can not believe that GM and the NHTS can not offer help the the owners of these trucks. Please make sure you put in a formal complaint with GM and the NHTS ..... MAYBE if enough people do they will have to address this matter. You can look up my User name for all the info.
PLEASE ANYONE ON THIS FORUM WHO HAS A SIMILAR ISSUE...YOU MUST PUT IN A FORMAL COMPLAINT. THIS WILL BE THE ONLY WAY TO GET ACTION.
